    Chill place either after work or a night out in London. Food is quite good - platter to share. Definitely a place to go back to.

    Youngish, trendy, hip and diverse crowd, loud pumping music with a large dance floor - drinks are a bit pricey, but it is London....

    Whiskey served in a jam jar? I'm not sure. Generally good prices though and happy hour is very good value. Good atmosphere but very noisy.

    Music is too loud if you just want a drink. Drinks are so expensive, aim to go during happy hour, everyday 5-7.30

    Atmosphere isn't electric but great drinks deals makes it a nice place to meet friends after work.
